DANVILLE — Brenda Kerst, 48, of Danville, passed away at 6:40 a.m. Monday, Oct. 22, 2012, at North Logan Health Care in Danville.

She was born April 29, 1964, to Robert L. and Mary I. (Silberer) Kerst in Danville.

Brenda is survived by her life partner, Alyce Marion of Danville; son, William (Mariah) Dodge of Milroy, Ind.; grandchildren, Brandy Jo, Michael and Katlyn Dodge, also of Milroy, Ind.; two brothers, Robert E.
